We, the undersigned, call on the State of Colorado to change the current law relating to video voyeurism to increase sentencing of the guilty party.

Under the new law, any person who uses a camera or similar recording device to record another individual either for a lewd or lascivious purpose without that person's consent is in violation of the law.

We are requesting that the penalty for violation be a felony and sentencing should be increased to a fine and/or imprisonment of up to three years, or ten years in the case of a minor.
